    Probaby some of you guys already noticed the FFB gets very violent when going off track and hitting the curb.
    Abit annoying, but you can try this. :)

    Gonna try this now, this issue makes the game almost unplayable at the moment for me because it wakes the whole house up, 4yr old daughter woke up last night because of the racket my G27 was making :(

    I'll be trying this too. I have FFB disabled at the moment both because of the horrendous noise it makes and for fear of damaging my wheel. Really detracts from the experience not having it.

    Is this issue only affecting logitec. I can't say I've noticed anything too bad on my GT3RS, maybe fanatecs belts absorb the shock a bit.

    Could I have some help because I feel no counter force when I turn my wheel, it feels like there is no FFB while there is when ever I touch the curbs or go off-road.

    Well, technically speaking it affects all wheels. The problem is that the FFB is currently completely raw, with no filtering of any kind (according to ISI). It means lots of spikes and sudden, abrupt shocks which can cause a great deal of noise (and stress) on wheels using gears to deliver the forces. On a wheel using belts it will be much quieter, though the amount of stress may be similar.

    Note: I am not saying anyone's wheel will break driving this sim! Just that the FFB is not finished yet.

    Scott and the Luc at ISI have come up with a small tweek you can do in the controller config that will ease the over powerful rattling that some G25/7 owners get when going off track or on the curbs..

    Quote from scott:

    Important

    Remeber you have to Reselect the profile for it to apply the new .InI file changes

    If you simply change the .InI it will have no effect in the game unless you reselect the profile.

    This definitely works. I have a G27 and set it to 8. It now feels far better than before. Still rattles a fair bit off-road, but curbs are fine and the overall feel is quite good now.

    yup, its a temporary fix, but quite a good one, I have mine set to 11, but I run a G25-E (more than twice the power of a standard G25)

    Its a oke one yeah. With 8 it was oke for me. Offcourse a little rattle still in the gravel.
    But with this i can now normal drive a curb again without any rattle. :)

    The latency is only really gonna be a problem for people who are running lower end systems near the limit. For people with fair to excellent rigs, it should not be noticeable (but it can vary, rig to rig depending on settings such as AA etc )
